They're super comfy and fit like...well like a glove.

By that I mean you won't have the same amount of flop around your wrist as you would find in say an older CCM or EASTON glove, they're not as bulky. I've actually never had a glove fit as snugly as this line, and I like the way it's more snug because I feel more in control.

I heard the palms wear out faster than other gloves but I have yet to have any problems. Overall I would say for that price range one of the better values, better than say the Easton Se6's. If you're not in need of super hardcore pro protection I say go for it. If you can swing it though the XXV's are amazing for the value.

I use these gloves. When it comes to protective equipment, especially gloves, I don't really understand why people need to buy the high end stuff. The difference in weight is really minimal, and most people don't need anywhere near the level of protection the "pro-level" equipment offers. The XVI's are perfectly comfortable for me (try them on!) and provide more than enough protection, and I've taken several slashes on them.

Not sure about the long-term durability, but I have been using them for several months already and they are still in great shape. I do treat them with 70% alcohol and air them out after every use though, and I am sure that this has added to the life expectancy of the palms.

They're good for $55. Just don't expect them to have the durability or feel of a $100 glove.
The Vapor line generally has a tight fit through the palm.
